A cable drama series has been canceled after a season in which the show saw its viewer base erode significantly. TheWrap.com reports that ABC Family has pulled the plug on the teen drama “Twisted,” which will not return for a second season.
The series starred Avan Jogia as a 16-year-old who has been accused of murder. While the show debuted with 1.2 million viewers, it shed a third of those viewers before the season ended in April, the story notes. The erosion took place even with the show situated in what would be considered a strong time slot, leading out from “Pretty Little Liars” on Tuesday nights.
The drama was created by Adam Milch and also starred Denise Richards and Maddie Hasson, with the latter recently signing on for another project, the dramedy “A Light Beneath their Feet.”
“Pretty Little Liars” has already been picked up for seasons six and seven, which will make it ABC Family’s longest-running original series.
